Josephine Chaplin dies in Paris aged 74

‘For years, Josephine managed the Chaplin office in Paris on behalf of her siblings until she took leave to care for her husband Jean-Claude Gardin. Our deepest condolences are with her family.’ Gardin-Chaplin had previously married Nicholas Sistovaris and was in a relationship with the French actor Maurice Ronet, star of Purple Noon, until his death in the 1980s.  Her later husband, French archaeologist Gardin, died around 10 years ago.
